The Robo ReBarb hook was specifically designed for fishing super soft plastic worms. The plastic barb is molded on the shank of the hook which holds the worm on straight and tight. The barb prevents the worm from pulling down on the hook when dragging over rocks or through brush. These hooks actually reduce usage of worms and valuable fishing time when rigged correctly. The Robo ReBarb hooks are available in light-wire or medium-wire hooks which allow for a variety of worm sizes to be fished. When split-shotting or finesse Texas-rigging the Robo ReBarb hook pays big dividends.
